little things ~

Not being able to have my
big workhorse computer these past days
has found me appreciating the downtime more than I expected I would ~
don't get me wrong, I am still panicked about the
Black Screen of Death
but I HAVE had to slow down a little...
and in doing so I'm realizing that I guess I really did need to do just that.
{{I will hopefully hear from the 'puter-doc this eve with the final outcome}}

I have been doing what any blog-crazy, primitive/vintage,
farmhouse/farmlife-loving girl would do...I've been visiting some new blogs!
(you can see them on my sidebar)

I turn to them for inspiration ~ the homes & decorating are so pretty.
I love the blogging community & how I feel when I get comments on my posts ~ I do love to hear from you and want to know how you are & what you're up to...

I've also been cleaning my sewing room/studio ~ changing things out since I've been getting ready for the holidays...
here are a few of my favorite things that make my little heart sing~

~my primitive 'bling'~

~warm chocolate chip cookies~

~a NEW sewing basket (and a kitten for company)

~Reese's Xmas Trees~

~ANYTHING in glass jars~

~old quilts~

~vintage sewing baskets~

~vintage sewing tins~

can you see a pattern forming here? hahaha :)

It still amazes me that you all allow me to come into your lives for a minute or two everyday.
I value each & everyone of you for your thoughts, friendships & insightful comments
and I thank you for that!!!

Hoping you all have a wonderful day~
blessings from the farm,

I adore your little putz sheep in your primitive bling collection - have never seen one so small...But oh - those cookies did me in. It's almost 10 PM and I hear the oven calling my name...hope we have some chocolate chips! :o) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Hi Lori- thank you for sharing your favorite things. I love ALL of them and am so glad to see that there is someone else out there who finds joy in these simple little things. Most people I work with, live by, etc. think I'm nuts for hoarding such things but they bring me such joy.

I live outside of Washington, D.C. and every other mile all you see is new developments with 5,000 square foot homes on 0.1 acres and it just doesn't seem "real" if you know what I mean. I have long commute into the city each day and I always look forward to reading your blog and seeing the pictures. You give me comfort and inspiration!

I just finished stitching your Merry Heart pattern and I love it. Now I just need to decide how to finish it. I will try to send you a picture when it's complete.
